KFC does not take reservations, not even for John Travolta. A rep for the actor who tried to reserve a table at a location of the fast food chain in West Sussex, England was told Travolta would "have to queue at the front like everyone else." Fried chicken equality!

The employee who turned down Travolta's request told the Daily Mail "To me, customers are customers, no matter who they are. It doesn't make a difference if someone is famous." That is very noble and all, but also she thought someone was playing a prank on her: "I thought it might be a load of nonsense." Anyway, Travolta was in town for some Scientology event and likely can afford to eat in restaurants that actually do take reservations, so it probably turned out okay.
